There are a LOT of 1911 makers out there, in prices ranging from $300 to $30,000. Not all of them make an Officers ACP or Defender size pistol, but most have something in that class. Look around.

BTW - I think most 1911 aficionados accept the Springfield EMP as "a 1911." Yes, they truncated it a bit to adapt to 9mm and .40 S&W, but the fire control mechanism remains pure 1911. I would probably own an EMP if they weren't so expensive.

And you can't really go wrong with a Colt Defender. I carry a Colt Officers ACP so I don't need a Defender, but IMHO it's a fine pistol.
